New Year’s plans spark caution
Lt. Danny Cross with the Lincoln Parish Fire District No. 1, said the fire department would most likely be called on at least five calls involving fireworks that had gone awry during New Year’s Eve festivities.
“Be extremely careful with fireworks,” Cross said. “The biggest (fire prevention) is parental supervision and watching the children closely. That way, if a small fire does get started, they can put it out quickly.”
Cross said another way to prevent fires is to avoid dry areas.
“Don’t shoot where it’s really dry,” he said. “That could cause problems.”
